How are you all? Keep smiling, as your glass is always half full (if not completely full!)
My week has not been very exciting. After driving mum and my cousin to the airport in Malaga we went shopping at Ikea (yes, that was exciting!) to counteract my acute sadness of saying goodbye to my mum. She is 92 and every goodbye could be the last one...
We spent too much money, as you do...
I got this little sink & cabinet for the guest bathroom.
The rest of the week was spent tidying up and washing bedding and towels and all the things you do when guests have left.
Here is Spain the schools have broken up and so have all the clubs and associations. So this morning is my last gym for the summer. We will all receive a T-shirt with the name of our group on it and after gym we will go and have breakfast (coffee and a baghette) in a local bar. I have collected money for a present for the teacher and have made a card for us all to sign (and it will be something to put the money in).
Then next week we will all go out for dinner (usually we are about 15 or 16 ladies) Something to look forward to and to smile about.
The other thing I smiled about is my new towel rack! My mum was commenting that she could hardly see my new cooker as I had hung tea towels and oven cloth etc on the rail of my cooker. So when we were at Ikea the other day, we bought one of those racks that pull out. Graham fixed it to the side of a unit this morning and now I have my towel rack and I'm over the moon! (He says I'm easy to please).
Now for my daily postcard:
I happen to like turtles and I put that in my profile of Postcrossing, so I get lots of cards with turtles. Fab! This turtle has company. It was sent by Petra in Germany. She used some lovely stamps:
Flowers and baby squirrels. Cute factor 10.
Now to finish a smile factor:
For the non-Brits, H&S stands for Health and Safety. These health and safety regulations have become more and more ridiculous. I'm sure you have them in other countries in the world. They are almost impossible to comply with and there is so much paperwork involved too. This man has clearly had enough!
That's it from me this morning. I'm going to find a news channel on my computer (we don't have tv) to see what the result is of the Brexit Referendum. It will affect us even though we don't live in the UK.
Wishing you a good week with lots of smiles,
